We believe in the rule of law. That’s what our country is about, and no person is above the law,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told “Today” show co-anchor Savannah Guthrie during a TV interview Tuesday in an attempt to justify the unprecedented FBI raid of former President Donald Trump’s Palm Beach home.
If that’s the case — that we’re all “equal” under the law, as Pelosi says — what penalties will her husband, Paul Pelosi, face for allegedly drunk driving?
In May, the speaker’s husband was arrested and charged with driving under the influence in Napa Valley. “The DUI report alleges that Pelosi’s eyes were ‘red/watery’ and he was ‘unsteady on his feet, his speech was slurred, and he had a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage emanating from his breath,’” Newsweek reported. “His blood alcohol level was 0.082.”
It’s illegal to drive with a blood alcohol level of 0.08 or above in California, where the penalty for a first offense drunk-driving conviction could be six months in prison in addition to fines. If Paul Pelosi skates, or gets a wrist-slap, then her phony musings about equal justice ring hollow.
And what about President Joe Biden’s wayward son Hunter? The FBI has been in possession of his “laptop from hell” for years, but despite reported evidence of alleged crimes the first son may have committed, he hasn’t been arrested or subjected to unannounced pre-dawn intimidation raids by dozens of armed FBI agents like what shockingly took place to Trump and his family.
